San Jose Annulment Attorneys

Nullifying a Marriage or Domestic Partnership

If you believe that your marriage or domestic partnership is not valid, you may be able to seek an annulment. An annulment essentially voids the marriage or domestic partnership, making it seem as if it never happened. The annulment process is different from a divorce or legal separation, so it is important to speak with a divorce attorney about how to proceed.

Magdalena Law Group can assist you with proving annulment, filing the necessary paperwork, and resolving issues regarding custody/visitation, child support, and how property/debt will be divided in Santa Clara County. Our legal team is well-versed in how the law is applied when it comes to separation and what you can reasonably expect. We can guide you through the process step by step and work to preserve your interests.

Basis for an Annulment

You must be able to prove that one of the following situations apply to you and therefore warrants an annulment.

Marriages or domestic partnerships can be declared invalid if:

  • The filing party was under 18 years old at the time of marriage or domestic partnership
  • Either spouse was already legally married or in a domestic partnership
  • Either party was not in a sound state of mind and is unable to understand the nature of the marriage or domestic partnership (ex: spouse suffering from mental health issues)
  • Either party only consented due to the use of force
  • Either party was physically incapacitated (physically unable to consummate the marriage)
  • The spouses are close blood relatives (incest)
  • Fraud was used to deceive a party into entering a marriage or domestic partnership

There is a state of limitations for filing an annulment, which varies depending on the reason for annulling the marriage. We recommend that you speak with a San Jose family lawyer about how to file and whether you qualify for an annulment.
